aug 4 2022 update

The past couple of weeks has been crazy. My contract work got canceled because they didn’t realize how much it would cost to have it installed. They have done this before also with other projects. They start it and never finish it. I am having issues getting my 1u Proxmox server up and running. I didn’t realize you had to have a raid interface when I bought it. Some of the power cords are not long enough.

July 28, 2022 update

I started to move my proxmox server to my 1u case and ran into a couple of problems. One is an easy fixed and the other one i will have to wait for a while. I am going to have to move the stand offs for the motherboard. I just have to get a differnet wrench set. I lost the one I need of course. The other one I will have to wait until heat sync company sends me the correct heat sync.

Current setup ideas for my proxmox server

My current plan setup from my proxmox server is as follows: going to have 4 500gb solid state drive. I am going to setup a windows share on my windows 10 computer that will host the iso and backups. This will allow me to backup my backups on a local computer without having to use space on my proxmox server and it will be automaticly back up to my backblaze account.

just bought 4 sd 500gb drives for my proxmox server

This is just a quick update. I bought 4 solid state drives from amaazon each of them have 500gb. They will be going into my proxmox server. I am going using zfs file system where 2 will be strip and mirror on them. So I basicly have a little under 1 gb of total space for proxmox. I can always add more drives to my new proxmox server I am building.

July 2, 2022 update

I been having a lot of backup pain lately. So I havn’t been able to do what I wanted to do with the website and create another video about syncthing for computer hacking 101 website. I am going back to work starting on Tuesday and working my 8 to 5 job contract work. So I will not have much time to work on the website or youtube. I have to do this contract work because I need to bring in more money for my family and have money to buy thing I need for my youtube channel.

switch from wordpress to hugo

I just convert this wordpress site to hugo. There is still a few more things I want to change and add to it. I also started working on converting to hugo also. I am planning on getting the video out how to use syncthing this week before I go back to my 8 to 5 job contract work starting on July 5. I almost got my office clean up and starting to put a few of my things that I want to sell on ebay.
